Dad returned to Mogilyov late the night of June 14, 2012 from Phoenix. A "few" days later he ran this 5K in Minsk which was put on by the Victoria Club as a "conditioning race" to prepare for the July 1 Half-Marathon in Minsk. Deana got into the spirit of things, enrolled to run, and won 3rd place in the 30-39 year-old women's division! This was Dad's first race since Thanksgiving of 2007 in Tucson with Erica.Here you have a picture, with text, that was taken by the TV 1 Channel and put on the web:
